Technische Universität Berlin

Technische Universität Berlin is an internationally renowned research university with a rich tradition. Together with Freie Universität, Humboldt-Universität and their Medical Department Charité, Technische Universität Berlin has formed the “Berlin University Alliance”, which has in 2019 been selected as the only university alliance for the Excellence Strategy of the German Government. Technische Universität Berlin is in a leading role for three of the seven existing Clusters of Excellence of the BUA: Math+, SCIoI – Science of Intelligence, and Unifying Systems in Catalysis (UniSysCat) – which all three give home to a thriving and demanding doctoral program. Our academic activities are focused on achieving sharply-defined goals: building a distinctive profile for our university, ensuring exceptional performance in research and teaching, providing our graduates with excellent qualifications and ensuring that innovative research and societal responsibility go hand-in-hand.

Technische Universität Berlin strives to promote the dissemination of knowledge and to facilitate technological progress through adherence to the core principles of excellence and quality. Strong regional, national and international networking with partners in science and industry are an important aspect in these endeavors.

Remarkable synergy effects have been achieved through strategic collaborations with non-university research institutes, industrial partners and the universities of applied sciences in the region and beyond.

As a part of the outstanding research environment in Berlin and Brandenburg Technische Universität has defined key application areas:

  • Materials, Design and Manufacturing
  • Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Energy Systems and Sustainable Resources
  • Management, Infrastructure and Mobility
  • Knowledge, Communication Systems, Human Health

Center for Junior Scholars - TU Berlin

TU Berlin supports successful academic careers all the way through from programs for inquisitive schoolchildren to preparation courses to support students in the doctoral and postdoctoral phase. Diversity is the key to our approach to doctoral research, because different circumstances benefit from different supervision solutions - ranging from "traditional" employment in a university department via cooperation with industrial partners to Research Training Groups or comparable programs.

The Center for Junior Scholars (CJS) supports all doctoral candidates at TU Berlin with information and individual advice. It aims to provide the best possible conditions for early stage researchers, starting with annual introduction sessions for new doctoral candidates in each faculty.

CJS ensures that international doctoral candidates quickly find their feet in Berlin, acquire language skills that help them to get to know their host country and succeed academically thanks to excellent supervision and personal advice. The portfolio includes courses on Good Scientific Practice, Project Planning or the virtual college for Women in Doctoral Research.
